Violent Crimes detectives of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a reported robbery and shooting in a hotel room on Savannah’s Southside early Saturday morning.

The shooting occurred at the Econolodge on the 7500 block of Abercorn Street at about 4:28 a.m. Jo Robinson, 22, of Florida "heard a knock on her hotel room door. When she opened it, a male subject reportedly forced his way inside," police say.

"The two engaged in a scuffle. Robinson was shot after pepper spraying the suspect, who grabbed her cellular phone before fleeing," police say.

Investigators are working to determine whether Robinson and the shooter were previously acquainted on an internet site.

The suspect is described as a 23 to 24-year-old, light complexioned black male, standing about 5-6. His hair is low shaven and he has a mustache.
